Gary Weaver’s Speeding Bullet

This is short video of Gary Weaver’s aluminum R2 that inspired so many of to start building. Someone posted the videos on the Builders Group today, and I thought I’d pulled together this little montage.

It may not seem that impressive today as droids are a dim a dozen, but this was built many years ago and he helped pioneered the way for all us aluminum junkies. I can clearly remember Gary posting regular updates on the Replica Prop Forum and thinking to myself that I’d never have the patients, the skils or the money to pull something like that off 🙂
